"You disgust me!" she screamed,
her eyes flashing dangerously.
"Pig! You Dog! You hateful cretin!
You deserve what you've got and
Now you must reap what you
He watched her as she walked thought
The door, her hair now cropped short.
Desperately he ran and grabbed her wrist,
Pulling her against him, his eyes meeting hers
As they embraced.
"Don't leave," he muttered, burying his
Face in her hair, taking her scent in.
"I want you here, with me, forever,
As it is meant to be." He closed his eyes
Expecting her to push him away.
She wanted to run, she wanted to
Go through the door and never look back
Leave the monster who was holding
Her standing there, she wanted
To take her life back, to be free of him.
She didn't, she stood there, letting him hold
Her, her face pressed into his chest, the tears
Burning her eyes as she now collapsed, "I
Want to be here, but not as your slave, but
As your equal, as a person."
He looked down at the top of her head
And nodded, it was only natural, they were
Meant to be together, it was written
In the stars, but knowing that she actually
Wanted to be there with him was more important than the stars.
"We are bound," he said quietly as she clasped his shoulders,
"We will never be able to break the bound, but
We are now equals. We are lovers, and we are
Partners, forever bound together in this darkness
That is our world. Nothing but darkness. Forever."
